The World Health Organization expert warned that with the increase of Covid 19 worldwide, the virus “is not close to ending”.
Dr David Nabarro, who serves as the Covid-19 special envoy of the World Health Organization (WHO), said that a world without Covid-19 is not yet close.
“I’m not 100 percent sure that the world can ‘inoculate’ itself from this epidemic,” said Dr David Nabarro.
In his speech to the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh symposium, Nabarro said that while Covid-19 continues to circulate, new variants will be a “regular” event, “The pandemic is almost never ending”, he said.
‘WE SEE 4.5 MILLION CASES AND LOSS OF LIVES EVERY WEEK’
Emphasizing the number of cases in his speech, Nabarro said, “We have seen that four and a half million cases are reported every week and we see that they are very underestimated,” “We still see a really significant number of casualties. What I want to highlight is that the epidemic is increasing everywhere ”.
Speaking about Britain’s early start to vaccination and relaxation of social life restrictions, the World Health Organization expert said, “The current situation of England is against the current state of the world. Please do not think that this epidemic is over because it is not over.”
‘ONE OF THE FASTEST SPREADING VIRUSES I HAVE WORKED ON’
“If the number of cases is not reduced, we will see new waves of the disease and then explosive increases occur,” said Dr. Nabarro said it was “one of the fastest spreading viruses” he had ever worked on.
Dr David Nabarro said, “The time to doubling the number of infections has been greatly slowed down thanks to physical distance, masks, hygiene sensitivity and isolation,” and said, “People’s attitudes decreased the number of cases.”
